    Protean

    Protean by The Wailing Owl

    Summary: Snape had, like water, shaped himself to fit what surrounded him. Drabble, 100 Words.

    Why You Should Care: I’m not always a huge Snape fan: I often find him seriously OOC in fics, but this one is perfect. In exactly 100 words this author alludes to every event that’s shaped Severus’ character, everything that’s tossed and turned him, everything that’s affected him. The author uses half-quotes, and short sentences, and manages to include so much without feeling rushed. There’s more than a novel’s worth of emotion within those 100 words. Genius.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you can’t stand canon or fanon Snape, you’d best stay away, there’s a lot of the former and a little of the latter in this fic. Additionally, if you don’t believe in the power of drabbles and reckon that 100 well-organised words aren’t a patch on a novel-length fic, closely depicting each feeling, then this one certainly isn’t for you. But really, this is a pretty incredible achievement, and checking it out’s hardly going to take much time.
